A Winter Walk

I am so cold
every part of me
blue and numb
stunned silent
and struck dumb
by the frost
covering my body
like a blanket
of hurt and tingling
little reason
to continue
all I need
is a fire
and warm hearth
a blanket
and cup
of soup
need to call forth
some kind of bravery
in the face
of the storm
but I've been
long before
the storm
crushing me
